It wasn’t way back that Warner Bros. Entertainment released a statement relating to rumors of Henry Cavill’s exit from the Superman position. Now, almost three months after these rumors started circulating, Aquaman star and fellow Justice League member Jason Momoa has tried to dispel any uncertainty about Cavill hanging up the cape.
According to Entertainment Tonight, Momoa talked to the publication throughout a premiere of the just lately launched DC movie, Aquaman. In the unique interview, Momoa stated Cavill is not going anyplace anytime quickly. “I just talked to Henry… He’s absolutely not [leaving the character],” he informed ET. “[Cavill] loves the character. He’s not. One hundred percent.”
It was rumored again in September that Cavill would no longer play the role of Superman after negotiations of a cameo within the forthcoming Shazam movie fell by way of. What adopted was a sequence of posts from each Cavill and Warner Bros., with the British actor posting a bizarre video to Instagram and Warner Bros. saying, “While no decisions have been made regarding any upcoming Superman films, we’ve always had great respect for and a great relationship with Henry Cavill, and that remains unchanged.”
What brought on Cavill to tug out from the Shazam cameo was not an absence of curiosity from the British actor or a fallout between him and Warner Bros., however a scheduling battle between Shazam, which stars Asher Angel (Jolene, Andi Mack) and Zachary Levi (Tangled, Thor: The Dark World), and the newest entry within the Mission Impossible franchise, Mission Impossible: Fallout.
Neither Henry Cavill nor Warner Bros. have commented on Momoa’s statements. In our Aquaman review, we known as the movie “a movie with its own over the top, tongue in cheek, inconsistent, massive, irreverent, CGI-soaked tone, aesthetic, and world.”
Aquaman is scheduled to hit theatres on December 21.
